Women's Right To Choose Abortion


Abortion has been one of this country's most controversial
topic on hand. But if one sees the constitutional infringement
to women by the restriction of abortion, the torment to the
unwanted child and the anguish society has to sustain,then this
topic would not be so debatable. Too many people do not see the
cause and effect of not being able to have abortions.

All human beings are given some inalienable right guaranteed
by the Constitution. One of those privilege is the right to
pursue happiness. A baby can sometimes disrupt a woman's pursuit
of happiness. Even if she decides to give it up for adoption,
she still has the burden of carrying the fetus for nine months.
Having the option to perform an abortion can solve that obstacle.
Taking away this right would be invading on a woman's
constitutional liberty.

The unwanted child also suffers. Most of the time the
mother of the unwanted child is very young and inexperienced or
too poor to take care of the child. The child is usually
malnourished, has no medical care, and gets very little attention
or love. The foster care system isn't any better. Only a small
percentage of the children are adopted by suitable parents. But
the rest remain in the foster care system, where there is little
or no personal care. In both cases, the child has a poor
education because of the lack of attention and discipline. He
grows up to be unproductive individual or a menace to society.
Many get involved in drugs and crimes. These individuals are
also very violent, lacking morality due small amount of care they
received themselves. In the long run, not only does the child
suffer but also society, who has to tolerate his violent
behavior and crimes. An abortion can be seen as putting the
child out of misery while he doesn't have the ability to reason
or fear.

In short, abortion allows a woman to retain her
constitutional rights, it relieves a would be suffering child out
of his distress and it establishes a safer and more peaceful
society. On these grounds, abortion should be kept legal, and
even encouraged to specific individuals, for benefits to all of
us.
